From pioneering in-house private equity in public sector pensions to leading new investments in clean energy in North America and beyond, Canadian investors are respected for their leadership in global capital markets. 2020 looks like being the year they also step up strongly on the sustainable finance leadership opportunity.
Canada’s policy makers, pension funds, asset managers and insurance companies are all considering how they will respond to the sustainable finance shifts in Europe and China, a reluctant, bellicose United States, and a potentially hugely disruptive energy transition in the coming decade.
Megatrends and national politics are set to shape the future of ESG investing at home and abroad.
The RI Digital: Canada 2020 conference will examine the potential for Canadian investors to accelerate the energy transition, enhance corporate governance standards, and create a more prosperous future for all Canadians through the coronavirus recovery and beyond.
From systemic risks like economic inequality and climate change, indigenous project finance, human capital development and transport infrastructure, participants will debate a wide range of ESG themes that have the potential to either reinforce or destroy the bottom line for long-term value investors.
Join us on 15th-16th September to learn how Canadian investors and their global peers are adapting their unique investment style to incorporate key ESG risks and opportunities.
Register here to find out who is leading the way, and what lessons have been learned en route to more robust ESG integration and long-term value creation.
